Maspalomas

— 10 nights

Home to Gran Canary's Most Beautiful Beach

Fondly referred to as “El Sur” by the locals, Maspalomas serves as a hub of entertainment and beach activity on Gran Canary Island.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Maspalomas: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Carabela La Nina III, Las Canteras Beach, &more), Plaza Del Rosario (in Aguimes) and Playa de Melenara (in Telde). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Reserva Natural Especial de Las Dunas de Maspalomas, cool off at Aqualand Maspalomas, observe the fascinating underwater world at Palmitos Park, and enjoy the sea views from El Faro de Maspalomas.

To see maps, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Maspalomas sightseeing planning app.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Maspalomas is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Maspalomas due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Amsterdam in June, with highs in Maspalomas at 30°C and lows at 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Agaete.

Gran Canaria travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Nightlife · Geologic Formations
Often described as a "continent in miniature" because of its wildly varied landscapes and climates, Grand Canaria is mostly known for its long coastline where tourism thrives at modern resorts. The island is also a ideal for sightseeing by bike or on foot. A wide range of trails, from easy to challenging, link the island’s picturesque coastline and the quieter inland areas, which are dotted by green ravines and sleepy villages. Savvy travelers explore the island’s ancient but well-preserved cave dwellings, many of which have been turned into small restaurants serving a myriad of local delicacies unlikely to be found on the menu of any big-city eatery.
